Trenton Commission Passes

3.14 Mill Property Tax


Four Arrested Involving The

Death Of Sidney Henry


By John M. Ayers
The Trenton City
Commission decided to approve
a 3.14 mill property tax for
property owners in the
municipality Monday night in a
Special Budget meeting. The
board approved this on first
reading by a 4-1 vote.
Commissioner W. O. Bill
Clifton told the board that the
proposal that would increase the
water, sewer and garbage rates
by 16.5% was not on the
agenda. He also asked how can
the City Commission approve a
balanced budget when the rate
increase for the water, sewer
and garbage would be tentative
based on future action if the
board decided to proceed with
that proposal.

The senior member of the
City Commission told the board
that the City should approve the
3.14 mill ad valorem tax
increase. The City can borrow
$75,000 from Mr. Lavaughn
Sessions or from a bank and pay
off the outstanding debts
accumulated over the last year.
The City should then operate
within a balanced budget and


stay out of financial problems,
Clifton explained.
Commissioner Clifton. made
a motion to approve a 3.14 mill
proposal. Commissioner Tim
Kinsey gave a .second to the
motion for discussion. The
board voted 4-1 in favor of the
motion with Commissioner
Thigpen voting against the
motion.
Mike Myers, a rental
property owner in the City of
Trenton, told the board that he
just returned from being out of
town, and he didn't think the tax
increase was fair. He told the
board that his taxes from just
Trenton were going to increase
by $1,000. "I don't feel like this
increase is cost effective. What
you are doing is bad for
business and bad for Trenton. I
need to sell out and just get out
of Trenton," he explained.
Trenton businessman Paul
Redd told the board that this is
not a fair tax. The businesses
and commercial property
owners would fair much better
if the board would have adopted
the 2.5 mill tax proposal by
Commissioner Glen Thigpen
that also had a 16.5% increase


in water, sewer, and garbage
rates. Commissioner Thigpen
explained the 16.5% increase
would increase the average
water, sewer and garbage bill by
$10.00.
The City Commission in
their last budget workshop
asked the City Manager and the
Finance Committee chairman to
review the 2.5 mill tax proposal
with the increases in the'water,
sewer and garbage rates from
10% to 20% and bring this
information back to the board in
the next budget meeting.
The Monday evening
meeting was filled to capacity
with residents that wanted to see
what the City Commission was
going to do to their taxes. Since
1982, the City of Trenton has
not imposed an ad valorem tax
on the property owners and
businesses in Trenton.
The board's action in this
first reading sets the stage for
the 3.14 mills to become an
ordinance if the board passes
the proposal on the second and
final reading. A date and time
for this meeting was still
undetermined by City staff on
Tuesday, September 12, 2006.


The Gilchrist County Sheriff's
Office and the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement
(FDLE) announce the arrest of
Donald Hughes, 20, and Mat-
thew Koshowany-Pitz, 21, both
suspects in the Saturday, August
26 death of Sidney Lee Henry,
28. On Friday, September 8 and
Sunday, September 10, 2006,
two Chiefland residents were
arrested for Accessory After the
Fact (homicide). Agents from
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement and the Gilchrist
County Sheriff's Office ar-
rested David Andrew Powers,
Jr., 25, and April Marie Salley,
31, for their involvement in the
shooting of Sidney Lee Henry.
Henry's body was discovered
at 372 Rowland Boulevard,
Trenton, FL. It was determined
that Henry died from gun shot
wounds.
Gilchrist County Sheriff
David Turner requested the as-
sistance of FDLE special agents
and crime scene analysts in the
investigation of the Henry's
death. The joint investigation
led to arrest warrants for Hughes
and ,,. i., rt, -FPit.' Both
were arrested September 8th by


members of the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office, FDLE and the
Gainesville Police Department
at the Gainesville Greyhound
Bus station. Hughes and Ko-
showany-Pitz were booked into
the Alachua County Jail. At this
time both men are being inter-
viewed by the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office and FDLE. The
two individuals from Chiefland
were booked into the Gilchrist
County Jail. Grand Jury indict-
ments are scheduled for Septem-
ber 28, 2006.

Gilchrist County Sheriff
David Turner said, "The arrest
results of this investigation show
the power of law enforcement
agencies working together. The
citizens of Gilchrist County and
the Gilchrist County Sheriff's
Office appreciate all the assis-
tance provided by FDLE agents
and crime scene analysts in the
investigation and the assistance
of the Gainesville Police De-
partment in arresting Hughes
and Kosnowany-Pitz. Arresting
these two suspects in less than
two weeks demonstrates the
dedication of all involved."

Trenton And Bell Volleyball Rotarians Are Introduced To Proposed Flood

Teams Compete In Tough Games Control Improvements In City Of Trenton

Monday Night By Anna Wild
On M r nd tqnte, r Ib I,- 1


By Anna Wild
On Monday, September 11,
2006, things were really jump-
ing in Trenton when the Trenton
Lady Tigers shared their home
court with the Bell Lady Bull-
dogs in a volleyball match for
Middle School, JV, and Varsity
teams. The Middle School game
played out in only two games
with Bell dominating the games.
The 1st game was 22 Trenton
- 25 Bell and the 2nd was 21
Trenton 25 Bell. The JV
games went back and forth with
the 1st game being won by Tren-
ton 25 to 20 and the 2nd game
won by Bell with a final score
22 to 25(Bell). They played a
third game to break the tie and
the Lady Bulldogs brought home
the win with Trenton at 13 and
Bell 15.
By the Varsity game the Bull-
dogs were looking to dominate
the night and the Tigers were
looking to prove they were still
the best of the.best. As the teams
took to the court it became clear
they were well matched in skills
and both were determined to win.
The fans kept their respective
team motivated and you could
feel the anticipation in the air
as the night went on. The first 2
games were won by the Trenton
Lady Tigers with the 1st game
ending at 25 to 18 and the 2nd
25 to 22. The 3rd and 4th games
were nail bitters after Trenton
won the first two; the Bulldogs
seemed to get a second wind
and stayed a few points ahead
of the Tigers throughout the next
two games. Bell's #21, Shelby
Stone, carried a wicked spike
which earned the bulldogs quite
a few points. The fourth game
was the most exciting of the eve-
ning as the rules of the game and
calls of the ball being in or out
were questioned by Coaches and
fans. Games 3 and 4 were won
by the Lady Bulldogs with the
3rd final score at 20 to 25 and
the 4th at 21 to 25.
The 5th game started with the
Lady Tigers taking the lead early
and keeping it. The game ended
with the Trenton Lady Tigers
taking the 3rd win with the score
15 to 9.

IIn ivIiUnClay, JL 3 LIemllJl i I,
2006, the Trenton Rotary Club
welcomed Clay Coarsey from
the Suwannee River Water
Management District Resource
Management. He came to share
with the group some basic infor-
mation about how the City of
Trenton is taking measures to
help relieve the flooding prob-
lem that became very evident
in recent years. Through the
Suwannee River Water Manage-
ment District there were funds
made available to the city by
utilizing money from the Florida
Forever Funds from legislation.
These funds come from the sales
tax dollars that we all contribute.
These funds are paying for an
engineering firm to research the
problem areas they were made
aware of. At this time they have
made conceptual designs for
solutions on ten locations they
were originally told about. The
funding will pay for the reten-
tion ponds, piping, etc. to relieve
the storm water issue in Trenton.

Bell Town Clerk Resigns


By John M. Ayers
Bell Town Clerk Patsy
Avery announced to the council
Thursday night during their
monthly meeting that her
resignation would be effective
September 8, 2006. Mrs. Avery
thanked the council and the City
Manager for allowing her to
work in the clerk's position with
the Town of Bell.
"I regret that I will be unable
to continue to act as Town Clerk
for the Town of Bell. I find it
necessary to submit my
resignation effective September
8, 2006 as a result of personal
attacks on my character in the
form of obscene curse words
directed at my character by a
Council member, in front of
employees and citizens of the
Town of Bell. I will not and
cannot remain in an
environment where a council
member representing the town
behaves and is permitted to


behave in such an inappropriate,
unprofessional manner. It is my
hope that matters such as this
will not be allowed to occur in
the future.

I appreciate having the
opportunity to be of service to
my hometown and wish the
town success in the future. I will
continue going to Town
meetings and being involved
with the town's growth. Please
feel free to contact me should
you have questions regarding
my past work. I will do
everything I can to make this
transition as smooth as possible
for the Town."

Sincerely,
Patsy Avery

The council accepted the
resignation, but took no action
in regards to filling the position.

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
This past weekend, a portion,
of our family went to the woods
to begin preparing for the 2006-
2007 hunting season.
J and Lyndsay began to
cleanup their cabin as I tried to
clean up our cabin next door. I
also began to break ground to
prepare to plant some food plots
on the property.
Cindy Jo along with Carrie
and Adam came down to the
hunting camp near Cedar Key to
eat lunch. The accommodations
at the hunting camp are
primitive, to say the least, but
we always have a good time
when we get there.
On this particular day, J and
Lyndsay had .decided that we
needed to take the airboa't to
Cedar Key to fish. I truly enjoy
throwing the cast net from the
front of the airboat. I have never
had much experience piloting an
airboat, so I get the kids to drive
the boat" and I worry about
catching fish with the net.
On Saturday, the tide was
wiro g for ffi:h.i, il: thhe-
afternoon before dark. \\e
decided to put the boat in and
just ride around awhile and look
for some fish.
There were plenty of fish,


but most of them were so small
they would go through the cast
net.
Several times when I threw
the net, I would see a swirl in
the net before a small mullet
would jump from the water
through the monofilament net
and get away. We saw a lot of
fish up in the grasses, but by the
time the water had receded
down to inside the oysters bars
and flats, the stillness of sunset
was upon us. We were unsure of
the lights on the trailer so we
decided to head for the house.
We caught a few fish, but
the next trip should be better.

The anniversary of the. horrific events of
September 11, 2001 is a day filled with memories of
the deep inhumanity of man against man; when
hatred fuels the motives of those who seek to destroy
human life in large numbers; when a nation
slumbered with the prosperity of opulence and
indulgence is awakened to the carnage of
international murder; and memories fill the mind with
sorrow, despair and sadness that such an event was
witnessed by millions as it unfolded. The effects were
immediate and brutal. Shock waves of unbelief
echoed in every soul as the full impact of one single
day in history bore its brutal mark upon our hearts. It
is still too painful to watch.
"Behold, the nations are like a drop in a bucket,
and are counted as the small dust of the scales;
behold, He takes up the coastlands as a very little
thing" (Isaiah 40:15). The great prophet Isaiah
reminds us that as a nation we find a sense of pride in
our greatness and human wisdom yet before -the
Creator we are as a drop in a bucket. Our structures
of wealth may reach the sky but pale in comparison
to the height of Him who made man from the dust.
History repeats itself, with the constant drone of
nian's hatred as it is turned against other men and
combined with man's exultation, it becomes a series
of events that destroys thousands of lives.
We are a feeble people. Our frailty is raw. The
sorrow of commemoration is the painful reminder,
that we are only men of earthly stature that fill our
heads with grandeur yet are as "grasshoppers"
before Him who stretches out the heavens like a
curtain (Isaiah 40:22). Thousands of lives were
eternally impacted upon that fateful day and in a brief
moment of our history; men came to realize the
sanctity of life and value of "One Nation Under


God." We witnessed all the good of men destroyed
by the evil of'men to awaken within us a message of.
dependence to a Creator.
The apostle Paul declared upon the hill of Athens
- surrounded with the affluence of the Roman world
of his day "For in Him we live and move and have
our being" (Acts 17:28). He spoke not of the gods of
the Roman- world but the true God who made the
world and all that was in it. His plea was for men to
remember the limitations of their habitation and to
declare the reality of a Creator's presence. No matter
how high man builds his temples nor the vast wisdom
man expands upon the horizon of his own intellect,
the only lasting measure of truth is the constant
presence of the Creator.
In a flash of horrific proportions lives were
snuffed out. Faces of onlookers reflected the veracity
of life and its deepest meaning. Life is not so much
about the hustle and bustle of the maddening pace of
man's pursuits but the innermost core of what makes
man different from the beast of the field his soul. If
man is to learn from the pages of history stained with
the blood of his fellow man, it must come from the
lesson of dependence one must have in Jehovah God.
Isaiah declares: "Those who wait on Jehovah shall
renew their strength; they shall mount up with
wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint" (Isaiah 40:31).
Jehovah holds our breath in His hand (Daniel 5:23).
Our task is to open our eyes to the vast expanse of
His hand and the small dust we become in His
presence. When humbled before the "IAM" we then
can see clearly that He loved us enough to send His
only begotten Son to die for us (John 3:16) and find
comfort in times of sorrow even on September 11.

Streetwise
By Lauren Rudd
Too often Wall Street tries to
mold reality to meet its expecta-
tions, when it should be doing
exactly the opposite. The result
is often misguided expectations
and bargains for the astute in-
vestor.
An excellent illustration is
Seagate Technology. A year ago,
Wall extracted its usual ven-
geance in terms of beating down
Seagate's share price after Wil-
liam Watkins, Seagate's CEO,
reiterated but failed to increase
Seagate's fourth-quarter earn-
ings guidance, thereby sinking
the Street's expectations.
Nonetheless, as I discussed
back then, Seagate's future was
still bright and for the fiscal'year
ended June 30, 2006, Seagate
reported net income, exclud-
ing one time charges from the
Maxtor acquisition, of $2.03 per
share.
Although earnings were a lit-
tle light in terms of my estimate
at the time of $2.21, the shares
still performed up to their poten-
tial, rising from a closing price
of $16.57 a year ago to as high
as $25 by mid-May: As the mar-
kets retreated in June and July,
Seagate followed suit and is now
trading at about $20.42 per share
for a 23 percent capital gain.
In terms of expectations, in
its forward looking guidance
for fiscal year 2007, Seagate is
anticipating earnings of between
$1.90 and $2.00 per share, disal-
lowing one-time charges.
All of the preceding is fine but
what you really want to know is
whether Seagate's share price
will perform well over the next
twelve months?
The answer, to save you from
looking ahead, is an unqualified
yes, and here is some of the rea-
soning. Using a discounted earn-
ings model yields, an intfrisic
value of $29 per share, assuming
only a 5 percent earnings growth
rate. The 5 percent number is
low but it allows for a slowing
economy.
The more conservative free
cash flow to the firm model pro-
duces an intrinsic value of $27
per share, also with a 5 percent
earnings growth rate.
Finally, my earnings estimate
for this fiscal year is $2.00 per
share, with a per share price tar-
get of $26, for a potential capital
gain of 16 percent. To that, you
would add in a dividend yield of
1.42 percent. While the expecta-
tion for a 17.4 percent return is
somewhat less than last year's
performance, it is still an excel-
lent return.
Five years ago, part of New
York, including much of the

moment this week to remember
those that died innocently, and
those that died in the name of
protecting our freedom, with
the hope that maybe one day
rational intelligent thinking will
be the norm...rather than the rare
exception.

wide on Saturdays and Sundays
only through October 29th, then
every day November llth-Feb-
ruary 18th. There are no bag or
possession limits on crows.
The special September duck
season for wood ducks and teal
runs September 23rd-27th state-
wide. Hunters may take four
ducks per day, only two of which
may be wood ducks.
Canada goose, which is al-
ready in season in the Florida
-waters of Lake Seminole in
Jackson County, runs through
Sept. 27. Hunters may take five

cense, a migratory bird permit
also is required when taking
migratory game birds in Florida.
In order to receive the no-cost
permit, hunters must answer
a few questions regarding last
season when purchasing their
hunting license. The compiled
information provides the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service a
better assessment on how many
birds are harvested each year.
The FWC recommends
hunters obtain the "2006-2007
Migratory Bird Regulations for
Dove, Snipe, Woodcock, Rail,
Moorhen, Crow and Early Wa-
terfowl Seasons" brochure and
the "2006-2007 Florida Hunt-

MyFWC.com/hunting. These
publications also are available
from county tax collectors'
offices, license agents or at

Control Plans In City
Of Trenton
(Continued from Page One)
The first.site to get attention will
be NE 10th Street and SR 26;
they are in the process of acquir-
ing land to create a retention
pond to relieve the problems in
this area.
Once the project is complete,
the City of Trenton will be re-
sponsible for maintaining the
areas to ensure that they will
do what they are meant to do.
This project will not fix all of
the issues that we experienced
during the tropical storms in
2004; however, it is a step in the
right direction and will definitely
make a difference.
Mr. Coarsey shared additional
information as he answered
questions from the group about
building along the rivers and
other water concerns. The Su-
wannee River Water Manage-
ment District is in Live Oak
and can be a valuable resource
to anyone with questions about
permits for building on or near
the river or use of the rivers and
much more.

National POW/MIA Recognition Day is Tomorrow, Friday,,
September 15, 2006. Jamerson-Sheffield Post 91 of Florida's American:
, Legion, the Bell High School JROTC and the Bell High School Purple'.
Powerhouse Band invite you to honor the Nation's POW/MIA at a brief
ceremony prior to tomorrow night's football game in Bell. It is requested
that all veterans who wish to join iherim n the field during this moment of
honor, would meet no later than 6:30 PM at the northwest corer of the
Bell High School football field. Members of the.various Veteran Service
Organizations are requested to wear your official caps to identify
yourselves with your respective'organizations. Let people see who the
veterans are that are still serving our Nation, veterans and the community.
The Post 91 Legion Family invites the community to join with them on
Saturday, September 23, 2006, from 10:00 AM until around.2:00 PM for
the Children and Youih Dj, There will be fun food, and prizes for each
age group Thih eirnt is .:pen to everyone in the community. Bring the
children out and watch the fun. All proceeds and donations will go to
support the Post's community programs.:
Post 91 Family Executive Committee will meet at 6:00 PM tonight,
Thursday, September 14. The final preparations for the Children and
Youth Day as well as the POW/MIA service will be worked out. If you
can help on Saturday, September 23, let the Committee know what you
can help with. In order for this program to have a good effect, volunteer
labor is a necessity and the Post 91 Family is a good place to volunteer
your time.
This week in September has been event-filled over the years.
September 13, 1814, Francis Scott Key was detained aboard a British
warship shelling Fort Henry in Baltimore Harbor. What he saw that night
and early the next morning, inspired him to write poem about the night. It
was later put to music and has been our National Anthem since 1931, the
Star Spangled Banner. Some years earlier, on September 17, 1787,
delegates from twelve States voted to approve the proposed United States
Constitution, and now, September 17th is "Constitution Day". On
September 25, 1789, two years later, the First US Congress proposed
twelve Amendments to the Constitution, of which 10 were approved and
ratified, comprising the Bill of Rights. Many years later, the US Congress
authorized, on September 18, 1947, the establishment of the United States
Air Force as a separate service. It was formerly the US Army Air Corps..
Another event on Saturday, September 23, is Autumn begins at 01:37
AM Eastern Daylight Time. That is the time of the "Autumnal Equinox".
And for our friends in the southern hemisphere, Spring begins on that
date. And in this hemisphere, deer season is coming.
Remember, tomorrow night at Bell High School, just before kickoff,
the JROTC, Bell High Band and Post 91 will host a memorial service for
the POW/MIA of all our Nation's wars. Since December 7, 1941, over
88,000 American service personnel are MIA, and their families still await
the final, FACTUAL, word on their family member's disposition. Last
year, the families of SS-371, USS Lagarto, got the final word of their
family member's "tomb". The sub was found and later identified
formally by the US Navy, where it was sunk in WW. II by a Japanese
destroyer defending one of the Japanese convoys. While that just confirms
what was suspected, now the families know, without a doubt, and that can
give some comfort and closure. But there are still over 88, 000 Missing in
Action. Pray for them and their families.
Remember our Armed Forces all around the world today in your
prayers and thoughts each day. Here at home, watch over our
Legionnaires, veterans, widows and the families of those service members
on duty for America today, helping out when and however you can.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely, Sgt-at-Arms, Post 149

FEMA Map Meeting
Scheduled For
September 18th
New Gilchrist County flood
maps will become effective at the
end of Septmeber, and two meet-
ings have been set for Monday,
September 18th, to present them
to the public.
The first meeting will be from
2:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m., and is
geared toward city and county
officials, lending institutions,
insurers, engineers, surveyors,
Realtors, and other users of
flood maps. This meeting will
be held at the Gilchrist County

At 5:00 p.m., a public work-
shop will be held in conjunction
with the regularly scheduled

The new Gilchrist County
flood maps, which include in-
corporated cities and towns,
have been in production for
nearly two years. The project
is a cooperative effort of the
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency (FEMA) and the
Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District, and is part of
FEMA's plan to modernize all
flood hazard maps nationwide.
For fast-growing North Flori-
da, the new digital-format (elec-
tronic) maps will provide more
accurate, detailed and up-to-date
data to help local officials, plan-
ners, builders and developers
to better understand local flood
hazards and risks, and to help
them make more informed deci-
sions on where to build.
Insurance agents, lending
institutions, homeowners and
business owners will find the
new maps helpful in determin-
ing current flood risks.

foray into the political world was a positive experience

and I enjoyed meeting so many people.

I will continue to dedicate myself to the education

field and to be an advocate of doing what is best for chil-

dren, families and school employees.

I believe that the only way to truly understand the

enormous effort involved in the public education of chil-

dren is to spend an entire day volunteering in a school.

Public education is an American institution and needs

your support and involvement. Please find out how you

can support your schools and get involved!
Thanks once again for your support!

Remember Our
Troops
For those who believe, prayer
is a powerful weapon. It not
only does something for the
pray-er, but also it can increase
the faith of those who are being
prayed for, especially those who
are in harm's way and protecting
our freedoms which we some-
times take for granted here in the
United States of America.
We all should be consistent
in our prayers for those of our
county who are serving in the
Armed Forces. The following
is a known list of those who are
on active duty, and 'who either
have a residence here or who are
relatives of someone who lives
here in Gilchrist County. (If you
know of an active military per-
sonnel who is not listed, please
'contact the :Gitchrist County

Quiltep& C

Bits & Pieces From
The Joyful Heart
Quilters & Crafters
Well Sir, here we are in nearly
the middle of September. The
first pangs of going back to
school are but a memory; voting,
whether you liked the outcomes
or not, is behind us, at least until
November; and Labor Day has
come and gone.
Add all that together, with the
fact that graceful goldenrods are
dancing in the breeze, and I'd
say it's just about time to think
about autumn leaves and praise
the Lord...cooler weather.
I'm sure none of us are eager
to embrace Old Man Winter but
I'm pretty sure that most of us
have had enough of temperatures
often reaching three digits. And
I must say, of late the breezes,
mornings and evenings, have all
been a bit cooler.
And it was one of those
cooler mornings on Wednesday,
September 6th, that twenty-two
Joyful Hearts gathered together
to quilt, craft, and rejoice in the
blessing of one another's friend-
ship.
Our dear friend, Paulene Mar-
tin fhad quite a bad stroke about
two weeks or so ago. She is in
Jacksonville and making great
progress. Her husband, George,
keeps us up-to-date on her re-
covery. If things keep going as
they are, she should be able to
come home around the 28th of
September. Of course, she has a
long road ahead of her, but she is
strong in her faith and knows the
Lord will not forsake her. We
need to keep her and George in
our prayers.
Alberta Swanner, Ann Taylor,
and Evelyn Wood are holding
her place in the "amen corner"
for her and she is missed. Alber-
ta busied herself with her lovely
afghan squares. Evelyn was
busy as a bee making a stuffed
calico cat and Ann was busy

doing who knows what. Ann's
daughter was visiting for Ann's
birthday so she came along and
added to the fun and made her-
self at home.
Ann Mangone came but left
real early, she wasn't feeling all
that well. Hope you're feeling
better by the time you read this.
The Swedish Weavers: Alice
Binns, Heidi Kamp, and Cathy
Strom, Jackie Moore, Lu Row-
land, Martha Foster, and Betty
Hicks were all hanging right
in there, never missing a stitch.
They turn out some beautiful
throws and each so uniquely
different.
Lera Townsend was embroi-
dering, as usual, and Ruth Wilk-
erson was finishing an afghan
she's been knitting. Or was that
crocheting? Myrle Gilkey was
making another fuzzy something
or another. She works so well
with that yarn and she's fast.
Diana Lynn took care of club
business and worked on her
block of the month. She's hop-
ing to finish it in time to enter it
in the fair as a first time quilter.
Elaine Nemeth, who brought in
another delightful quilt she's
completed, flitted around multi-
tasking doing four or five things
at least. Some of us like Bonnie
Edwards, Barbara Strom, Pat
Luka, and myself watched her
buzzing about and spent our
time visiting and relaxing.
We have quite a few heart
blocks coming in and they are all
great. Mary Lou Ryder worked
on hers and it's going to be re-
ally unique and express Mary
Lou's hearts desire...her kayak.
This should be another quilt that
everyone will want. Marvine
Deer was busy with something
but you know I have these senior
moments if I don't write notes,
and I didn't.
We voted not to do toys this
year for Christmas, but to do
something for a nursing home
or the like. We also decided to

18th of October and to come in

Exciting News From
Bell And Trenton
Elementary PreK
On Monday, August 21st, the
new PreK computer labs at Bell
and Trenton Elementary schools
were officially up and running
with the Waterford literacy cur-
riculum. As you can see from
the pictures, the children are
excited about learning with this
new computer literacy program.
Reading is one of the most
important skills for children to
develop to help them become
successful in life. Children
who do not learn to read almost
never reach their full potential.
Research shows that children
come to school with anywhere
from 200 to 3,000 hours of.
pre-literacy experiences. The
children with less pre-literacy
experiences tend to be the chil-
dren most at risk of future school
failure. Without early, interven-
tion for these at-risk children,
they become poor readers in the
early grades, thus resulting in
being poor readers throughout
their school careers. The Water-
ford Curriculum is designed to
give students the opportunity to
gain the skills needed for early
reading success at each child's
individual level and pace.
We are fortunate to have this
program in our schools. A grant


from the Early Learning Coali-
tion of the Nature Coast funded
a Waterford computer lab for
one school's PreK programs.
Because our schools are not for
profit, our School Board used
Prekindergarten funds to pur-
chase a Waterford computer lab
for our other PreK programs.
This provides all of our PreK
students access to this computer
based literacy curriculum. We
would like to thank the Early
Learning Coalition and our
school administration for being
so supportive of our early learn-
ers in our school system. We are
fortunate to live in a community
where members of our Coalition
and School Board value our
PreK children enough to make
wise investments in their future.

New Faces At Bell
High School
Every year new students grace
the halls at BHS and they always
make a positive impact. This
year BHS is proud to announce

The Swamp Of
Aucilla 39-0
by SandyPanchyshyn
How 'bout those dogs? It
started out rough with an injured
#3 bulldog in the first quarter.
Daniel Fleck running a sweep
play to the left, broke the run for
30 yards which gave Bell a very
important first down. At the end
of the play, he, as well as a pile
of players, landed on his right
arm leaving the entire field to
take a knee and.all.to wait.in si-
lence. The tough, injured #3 dog


was brought to his feet and car-
ried off the field on a stretcher to
later find a dislocated, fractured,
chipped elbow.
As prayers and thoughts were
with him his teammates got
toughened up and went back to
work. The team pulled it back
together and went back out
there and got what they drove
two hours to get. By the second
half'the rain came down and our
bulldogs became "mud-dogs"
and the score was 18-0.
The bulldog crowd was plenty
prepared for the rain with pon-
chos, umbrellas, and tents for
,all to staydry. However, Coach
Brown stayed out on the field


soaked without any rain gear,
even though offered. If the
team was saturated then so was
he. The bulldogs went to vic-
tory ending the fourth quarter in
Aucilla 39-0.
We would also like to thank
all the parents that helped make
it possible for the team to have
sub sandwiches for the ride
home and Terry and Robin Boyd
for arranging to pick those up.
Great game guys. Great Team-
work. Go JV Bulldogs.

Both the offense and the defense

Thanks to great coaches and a

Lets also not forget the Bull-

e Win Over
By Anna Wild
The Trenton Tigers found
themselves up against the wall
again Friday night needing a
last minute point to earn the
win. The Tigers attempted an.
extra point kick following an
overtime touchdown run by
Durel Henry. The snap from
center was high and the kick
was no good. The Pirates es-
caped with a 27-26 win.
In the first 15 seconds of the
game, Sneads managed to score
the first touchdown on a 70-
yard kickoff return.
Trenton's Durel Henry put
some serious moves on the Pi-
rates' defense on the field dur-
ing the first quarter. On one
play in particular the Tiger
quarterback gained 15 yards as
he dodged and weaved his way
through the Pirates' defense.
Trenton's no. 8, Chase Beck-
ham, scored a touchdown in the
first quarter but the officials
nullified the score.
,During the second quarter,
Trenton's Taylor Wilkerson,
Billy Owens, and C. J. Bowers
stopped the Pirates from com-
pleting a 2-point conversion
after making a touchdown. The
Sneads Pirates led 12-0 at in-
termission.
In the third quarter the Ti-
gers came out with a fury.
Brandon Mathis put on some
moves by weaving in and out of
the Pirates' defense. The Tigers
got their first touchdown on the'
scoreboard in the third quarter
as Henry connected with C.J.
Bowers for 39 yards. Brandon
Mathis "tipped" a pass attempt
by the Pirates in the third quar-
ter with just less than 1 minute
left on the clock. This counted
as an interception giving the
Tigers control of the ball.
In the fourth quarter the Ti-
ger fans got loud giving their
team extra momentum. In the
opening minutes of the fourth
period Bowers put the Tigers to
within 1 point of a tie when he
scored a touchdown on a 60-
yard dash. Trenton's Brandon
Capps tied the game at 20-20
with an outstanding extra point
kick. With 22 seconds remain-
ing in the game the Pirates in-
tercepted a Tiger pass attempt.
Moments later, Durell Henry
intercepted a Pirate pass with
just under 10 seconds left in the
game.
Sneads took the ball first in
the overtime. The Pirates tried
to pass the ball for a touchdown
but the ball was knocked away
by Chase Beckham. The visi-
tors scored on a 6-yard pass.
The extra point kick was good
for a 27-20 lead.
Trenton's Durel Henry put
the Tigers to within 1 point on a
1-yard touchdown run. During
the field goal attempt the snap
was not good and Trenton tried
to run the ball into the end zone
but could not make it.
Trenton's quarterback Durel
Henry completed 7 of 12 passes
for 127 yards and 1 touchdown.
C. J. Bowers led the Tigers in
rushing with 63 yards on 2 car-
ries. He also received a 39-yard
Henry pass for a touchdown.
The Tigers have now played
three games in 2006. Each of
these regular season games has
gone into overtime. The Tigers
are now 1-2 with the two losses
decided by a single point. The
Tigers will host District foe
Hawthorne Friday night. This
game is set to kickoff at 7:30
p.m. Trenton fans are looking
for their Tigers to bounce back
with a win.

The Importance Of
Social Security
Survivors Benefits
September 11, 2006 marked
the fifth anniversary of the ter-
rorist attacks on America. The
nation suffered devastating
losses on that day. Social Secu-
rity has handled more than 5,000
individual claims related to
September 11th. Although some
were disability claims from
people who survived the attacks,
most were for survivors benefits
for the spouses and dependent
children of those who died.
The tragedy reminded us of
what many people tend to forget
that Social Security is more than
retirement. The Social Security
taxes that 160 million workers
pay also insures them and their
families should the worker
become disabled and unable to
work. These taxes also pay for
survivors benefits in the event
of the worker's death. In fact,
14 percent of Social Security
beneficiaries are the survivors of
insured workers.
From another perspective,
about 97 percent of persons aged
20 49 who worked in 2005
have survivors insurance protec-
tion for their young children and
the surviving spouse caring for
the children.
In fact, the value of the survi-
vors insurance that most people
have under Social Security is
probably more than the value
of their private life insurance
policies. How much a particular
family can receive from Social
Security depends on a worker's
average lifetime earnings.
To see what your family could
receive, check your Social Se-
curity Statement, which is sent
each year to every worker age
25 or older. The Statement gives
an estimate of survivors benefits
that could be paid, as well as an
estimate of retirement 'and dis-
ability benefits and other impor-
tant information.
SIf you would like more
information about Social
Security survivors benefits,
visit www.socialsecurity.gov/
planners/index.htm or call So-
cial Security at 1-800-772-t213
(TTY, 1-800-325-0778) and ask
for the publication, Survivors
Benefits.
Of course, we all hope and
pray our family members will
never be in a position to collect
..such, berfts. But yoy,.cap take
comfort knowing '-.1.c .I c.i._i It
taxes are providing this impor-
tant protection should something
unexpected happen to you

He who stays in the valley shall
never go over the hill.

balaya Classic Brahman Show on September 3, 2006, in Gonzales, Louisiana.

ished with the quilting classes,
that they are completely ad-
dicted to quilting.
Quilting brings many ladies
together to form some very
wonderful, lasting friendships.
Quilting ladies are always good
cooks, and quilting will most
likely replace cooking. The next
addiction is the desire to have
the largest fabric stash. The
strange thing even with a large
stash, one never has the correct
amount of fabric or the correct
color to complete a project so
it is back to a fabric shop for
another stash purchase.
The new year for Springhouse
will begin in January. Members
are now renewing their dues and
for those wanting to join Spring-
house, now is a wonderful time
to get into the excitement of
quilting and making new friends.
The basic requirement for being'
a member of Springhouse is that
members are expected to help
with raffles, quilt shows, and
participate in each community
project.
For information about Spring-
house Quilters, contact Anna
Gilliam, 463-7922 or Lois Scott,

"Hatching The Past"
Dinosaur Egg Exhibit
To Open On
September 16th At
Florida Museum
Beginning September 16th, the
Florida Museum of Natural His-
tory will display dinosaur eggs,
nests and embryos in its newest
traveling exhibit "Hatching the
Past: The Great Dinosaur Egg
Hunt." This remarkable hands-
on exhibition offers visitors the
opportunity to see a collection
of 100 authentic dinosaur ebgs,
and nests collected from around
the world.
A captivating experience for
all ages, "Hatching the Past"
invites visitors to touch real di-
nosaur bones and reconstructed
nests one more than eight
feet in diameter dig for eggs,
experience hands-on exploration
stations and view video presen-
tations featuring well-known
dinosaur experts. Each science-
rich section is enhanced with
life-like models of embryos and
hatchlings, colorful illustrations
of dinosaur family life and stun-
ning photographs of some of the
world's most renowned dinosaur
hunters and their discoveries.
"When most of us think
of dinosaurs, we think of the
fully grown adults," said Darcie
MacMahon, Florida Museum of


Natural History assistant direc-
tor for exhibits. "This exhibit
showcases the amazing science
of dinosaur eggs how and
where scientists have discovered
ec,-s and nests, and the remark-
able stories these fossilized eggs
reveal about dinosaur life. It's an
Alice-in-Wonderland experience
to adjust our view from the per-
spective of these towering giants
and peer into the hidden interior
of a dinosaur egg."
From 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. on
opening day, visitors may make
a dinosaur egg, don a triceratops
hat and learn about paleontology
during a day of family fun. At
1:00 p.m., join Dale Russell for
"The Precarious Life of a Di-
nosaurian Egg" as he discusses
how paleobiologists must now
visualize the biologic mystery of
animals resembling, egg-laying
elephants inhabiting the Earth
for nearly 150 million years.
The fossils on display in
"Hatching the Past" include an
authentic bowling ball-sized egg
of a sauropod from Argentina
- laid by a long-necked, plant-
eating titanosaur that lived 75
million years ago; a large cluster
of eggs laid by a duck-billed,
plant-eating dinosaur and the
longest dinosaur eggs ever dis-
covered almost 18 inches long
- laid by a ne~w giant species of
oviraptor, a carnivorous, ostrich-
like dinosaur.
"Hatching the Past" was
developed by Charlie and Flor-
ence Magovern of The Stone
Company, Boulder, Colorado,
in association with the Harvard
Museum of Natural History.
The Magoverns gained national
recognition when their work was


featured as the cover story in
the May 1996 issue of National
Geographic. A central feature of
the exhibit features Charlie's ex-
traordinary find a giant ovirap-
tor hatchling he named "Baby
Louie," which was discovered in
a block of elongated eggs from
China.
The Florida Museum will
display the exhibit through Janu-
ary 7, 2007. Admission is $4 for
adults, $2 for children ages 3-122
and free to Florida Museum
Associate and Curators Society
me~mbers.

Free NRA Disabled
Sportsmen's Packet
In the United States, there
are over 650,000 hunters with a
physical disability. Add to this
the more than 500,000 disabled
fishermen, and the total figure
comes to over 1,150,000 sports-
men with a permanent disablilty,


who annually take part in two of
the nation's major outdoor recre-
ational activities.
Many of these deter-mined
sportsmen would not be able
to pursue their favorite pastime
were it not for the assistance of
an adaptive piece of hunting or
fishing, pole or rifle holder for a
person who has lost the use of
one arm,wheelchairs designed
for rough terrain, and a cross-
bow with an automatic cocking
mechanism for sportsmen with
reduced arm strength.

plenty of local goodies including
tomatoes, cucumbers, bell pep-

Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, September 7th, at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
What a great day with the most
wonderful rain, never heavy just
a slow rain that you could almost
see the grass and plants saying
"Thank you Lord."
It is so good to have Marie
back with us to help in the kitch-
en and other places. Sometimes
it's great to get away from other
things and come to our quiet
place and really relax.
Greg and five boys were out
Tuesday and got so much done.
They always make the place
look so good and we do appreci-
ate all they do. We will be at Law
Appreciation nite September 21st
at the Usher Center and we will
have an officer from Lancaster
there to be honored. Come out
and see how much all of the men
and women do for you everyday.
What a bad place it would be
if we didn't have these people
working for you.
Before we know it, it will
be Quilt Show time. We start
November 24th and run until
December 3rd. More about it as
time goes by. '
Lunch was so good today, we
had rice, creamed corn, okra and
tomatoes, macaroni and cheese,
broccoli salad, jello, Betty's
lemon pie, Marie's strawberry
cake and so much more

Florida's 2006 turkey hunting
seasons is a hoax.
According to the bogus notice,
delivered to the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) via fax, sev-
eral cases of avian influenza in
Northwest Florida wild turkeys
prompted closure of this year's
turkey hunting seasons, and pos-
sibly subsequent years' through
2009, as well. It says the ac-
tion is necessary to prevent the
disease from spreading through
other wild bird populations.
The FWC and other agencies
across the continent are monitor-
ing bird populations for signs of
the disease. To date, they have
discovered no cases of the high-
ly dangerous form of the disease.
As part of the FWC's avian in-
fluenza surveillance, scientists
investigate reports of bird deaths
and ask that anyone who finds
dead birds note the details online
at MyFWC.com/bird or contact
the local FWC office. Further
information about avian influen-
za is available at MyFWC.com/
bird/avianinfluenza.htm.
Florida's fall turkey hunting
season is November 23rd-26th
and December 9th-January 14th
in the Northwest Hunting Zone,
and November l1th-January 7th
in the Central and South zones.
Spring turkey hunting season is
March 17th-April 22nd in the
Northwest and Central zones,
and March 3rd-April 8th in the
South'Zone. Hunters also may
take turkeys during archery,
crossbow and muzzleloading
gun seasons before the fall sea-
son begins.
Holmes County has no fall
harvest of turkeys, and the
spring harvest there is limited
to March 17th-19th to enable the
county's depleted turkey popula-
tion to rebuild.

Haven Hospice
Receives Grant To
Help Increase Access
To End-Of-Life Care
Despite Racial
Barriers
Aetna Inc. (NYSE: AET)
and the Aetna Foundation have
awarded Haven Hospice a
$50,000 grant in support of its
Health Care Disparities Project.
Part of a new Compassionate
Care (SM) Program, the grant
furthers Aetna's and the Aetna
Foundation's commitment to
empower Americans to make
well-informed decisions about
their health care, including the
care they receive at the end of
life.
"Everybody deals with end of
life issues," said Haven Hospice
Executive Director, Tim Bowen.
"This grant is a leap forward for
Haven Hospice in our ability to
provide the best end of life care
for everyone we serve."
The grant will help Haven
Hospice research and address
the racial and ethnic disparities
regarding access to end-of-life
and palliative care. Part of the
grant will include three 30-
minute television programs ex-
ploring this topic in-depth. The
programs will air on WJCT-TV
during November, December
and January and then be com-
piled into a 90-minute special
to be aired in February during
Black History Month.
"Working to build healthy
communities, Aetna and the
Aetna Foundation are address-
ing racial and ethnic disparities
in health care," said Marilda L.
Gdndara, President of the Aetna
Foundation. "For six years, the
Regional Community Health
Grants Program has been a ma-
jor part of that effort by funding
programs that improve under-
standing of racial and cultural
diversity, and provide access to
quality health care."
Under the year-long grant,
Haven Hospice also will focus
on educating health care profes-
sionals and caregivers on the
barriers African Americans and
Hispanic populations meet when
accessing end-of-life care. This
portion of the grant will be exe-
cuted in an innovative "train the
trainer" approach that utilizes
key community partnerships.
About the Aetna Founda-
tion: The Aetna Foundation is
the independent charitable and
philanthropic arm of Aetna Inc.
Founded in 1972, the Founda-
tion seeks to help build healthy
communities by funding initia-
tives and promoting volunteer-
ism that enhances the quality
of life where our employees and
customers work and live.
The Foundation's giving cen-
ters on health, with a focus on
reducing racial and ethnic health
disparities, and improving end-
of-life and depression-related
care; diversity; and supporting
employee programs such as
matching gifts and volunteer-
ism.
Since 1980, Aetna and the
Aetna Foundation have con-
tributed nearly $290 million in
grants, scholarships and social
investments. In 2005, Aetna and
the Aetna Foundation contrib-
uted approximately $19 million
nationally.

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF
ENVIRONMENTAL
PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE
PERMIT
The Department of Environmen-
tal Protection gives notice of its
intent to issue a permit to CCDA
Waters LLC, 7100 NE CR 340,
High Springs, FL to construct and
operate a land application system
for the disposal of bottle rinse wa-
ter, process line wash water, and
reverse osmosis concentrate from
the water bottling plant. The source
of water used for the process water
is Ginnie Springs. Line wash water
and reverse osmosis concentrate
will be blended and pH neutralized
prior to being pumped and blended
with bottle rinse water and process
wastewater that has acceptable
pH. The wastewater will then be
pumped to three rapid infiltration
basins. The basins are connected in
parallel and each have a bottom area
of 2.67 acres. The bottom elevation
of the basins is 48.0 NGVD and the
top elevation of the basins is 51.0
NGVD. The design wastewater
flow for the system is 0.31 MGD
(maximum).
The intent to issue and applica-
tion file are available for 'public
inspection during normal business
hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.,
Monday through Friday, except
legal holidays, at Northeast District
Office, 7825 Baymeadows Way,
Suite 200B, Jacksonville, FL 32256-
7590.
The Department will issue the
permit with the attached conditions
unless a timely petition for an ad-
ministrative hearing is filed under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Flor-
ida Statutes, within fourteen days
of receipt of notice. The procedures
for petitioning for a hearing are set
forth below.
A person whose substantial in-
terests are affected by the Depart-
ment's proposed permitting decision
may petition for an administrative
proceeding (hearing) under Sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes. The petition must contain
the information set forth below and
must be filed (received by the clerk)
in the Office of General Counsel of
the Department at 3900 Common-
wealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35,
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.
Under Rule 62-110.106(4),
Florida Administrative Code, a
person may request enlargement of
the'time for filing a petition for an
administrative hearing. The request
must be filed (received by the clerk)
in the Office of General Counsel
before the end of the time period for
filing a petition for an administrative
hearing.
Petitions filed by any persons
other than those.entitled to written
notice under Section 120,60(3),
Florida Statutes, must be filed
within fourteen days of publication
of the notice or within fourteen
days of receipt of the written no-
tice, whichever occurs first. Under
Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes,
however, any person who has asked
the Department for notice of agency
action may file a petition within
fourteen days of receipt of such
notice, regardless of the date of
publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy
of the petition to the applicant at the
address indicated above at the time
of filing. The failure of any person to
file a petition or request for enlarge-
ment of time within fourteen days
of receipt of notice shall constitute
a waiver of that person's right to
request an administrative deter-
mination (hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida Stat-
utes. Any subsequent intervention
(in a proceeding initiated by another
party) will be only at the discretion
of the presiding officer upon the fil-
ing of a motion in compliance with
Rule 28-106.205, Florida Adminis-
trative Code.
A petition that disputes the mate-
rial facts on which the Department's
action is based must contain the fol-
Slowing information:
(a) The name, address, and tele-
phone number of each petitioner;
the name, address, and telephone
number of the petitioner's repre-
sentative, if any; the Department
permit identification number and the
county in which the subject matter
or activity is located; FACILITY:
CCDA Waters High Springs PA File
No.: FLA499447-001-IW5B PER-
MITTEE: CCDA Waters LLC
(b) A statement of how and when
each petitioner received notice of
the Department action;
(c) A statement of how each
petitioner's substantial interests are
affected by the Department action;
(d) A statement of all disputed
issues of material fact. If there are
none, the petition must so indicate;
(e) A statement of facts that the
petitioner contends warrant reversal
or modification of the Department
action;
(f) A concise statement of the
ultimate facts alleged, as well as the
rules and statutes which entitle the
petitioner to relief; and


(g) A statement of the relief


sought by the petitioner, stating pre-
cisely the action that the petitioner
wants the Department to take.
Because the administrative
hearing process is designed to
formulate final agency action, the
filing of a petition means that the
Department's final action may be
different from the position taken
by it in this notice. Persons whose
substantial interests will be affected
by any such final decision of the De-
partment have the right to petition to
become a party to the proceeding, in
accordance with the requirements
set forth above.
In addition to requesting an ad-
ministrative hearing, any petitioner
may elect to pursue mediation. The
election may be accomplished by
filing with the Department a media-
tion agreement with all parties to the
proceeding (i.e., the applicant, the
Department, and any person who
has filed a timely and sufficient
petition for a hearing). The agree-
ment must contain all the informa-
tion required by Rule 28-106.404,
Florida Administrative Code. The
agreement must be received by
the clerk in the Office of General
Counsel of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail
Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000, within ten days after
the deadline for filing a petition, as
set forth above. Choosing mediation
will not adversely affect the right
to a hearing if mediation does not
result in a settlement.
As provided in Section 120.573,
Florida Statutes, the timely agree-
ment of all parties to mediate will
toll the time limitations imposed
by Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes, for holding an
administrative hearing and issu-
ingha final order. Unless otherwise
agreed by the parties, the mediation
must be concluded within sixty days
of the execution of the agreement.
If mediation results in settlement
of the administrative dispute, the
Department must enter a final order
incorporating the agreement of the
parties. Persons seeking to protect
their substantial interests that would
be affected by such a modified final
decision must file their petitions
within fourteen days of receipt of
this notice, or they shall be deemed
to have waived their right to a pro-
ceeding under Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes. If media-
tion terminates without settlement
of the dispute, the Department shall
notify all parties in writing that the
administrative hearing processes
under Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes, remain available
for disposition of the dispute, and
the notice will specify the deadlines
that then will apply for challenging
the agency action and electing rem-
edies under those two statutes.

Downtown Festival
And Art Show
Recognized As 28th
Best Art Show In The
Nation
After 25 years of excellence,
the Downtown Festival and Art
Show, presented by the City of
Gainesville's Division of Cul-
tural Affairs, rose to historic
heights this year. The show's
rankings soared, jumping from
No. 81 to No. 28 on the Sunshine
Artist magazine's "200 Best" list
of fine art festivals in the nation.
Sunshine Artist magazine,
"America's premier show and
festival publication," created the
"200 Best" list by tallying thou-
sands of ballots from artists who
listed their top-selling events.
The magazine received votes for
more than 1,000 shows. Out of
all of these events, the Down-
town Festival and Art Show was
one of only 20 percent of the
shows that made the final list.
The Downtown Festival and
Art Show will celebrate its 25th
year on Saturday, November
,4th and Sunday, November 5th
from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in
the heart of historic downtown
Gainesville.
Since 1996, the festival has


received national recognition
and honors for its acclaimed
artists, talented musicians, and
delicious array of cuisines.
This year, more than 650 art-
ists applied to participate in the
show, but only 250 of the best
were chosen. These artists will
display their unique art work to
thousands of festival attendees
over the duration of the two-day
festival.
The Downtown Festival and
Art Show has grown tremen-
dously since its inception in
1981, with more than 100,000
visitors expected to attend this
year's 25th annual celebra-
tion. The streets of downtown
Gainesville from City Hall to the
Hippodrome State Theatre will
showcase some of the nation's
best artists and musicians.
Visitors can enjoy live, con-
tinuous entertainment on three
stages by local bands, musicians
and dance companies, without
paying a penny. The weekend
begins with the Downtown Blues
Festival on Friday, November
3rd, presented by the North Cen-
tral Florida Blues Society. At
7:00 p.m., Gainesville's own
Used Blues Band will open
the show. Then, at 8:00 p.m.
prepare to travel back in time


with JW Gilmore and the Blues
Authority to the days of Muddy
Waters and B.B. King as the
band brings listeners a taste of
the old-style blues. Next, na-
tionally acclaimed blues artist
Eddie Kirkland, who has worked
with legends such as Otis Red-
ding and Little Richard, will
bring audiences to their feet with
his energetic dance beats.
The musical celebration con-
tinues all weekend long, bring-
ing the 5th Annual Jazz Festival
to the Downtown Community
Plaza on Saturday evening, No-
vember 5th. Beginning at 6:00
p.m., trumpet-led Ginetta's Ven-
detta from NYC will take the
stage. Following Ginetta's Ven-
detta, audiences will be soothed
by the sounds of Gainesville's
most talented smooth jazz bands,
Gruv Therapy. Headlining the
event is jazz flautist Bradley
Leighton. Guests won't want
to miss these magical nights of
music under the stars.
The 25th Annual Downtown
Festival and Art Show is Gaines-
ville's premier fall festival of the
arts. The arts festival is free for
the entire family and open to the
public all weekend long from
10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Become
a part of a 25-year-old cultural
tradition, stroll the tree-lined
streets searching for your fa-
vorite artistic piece, enjoy soul-
ful blues, bask in the sounds of
smooth jazz and taste foods from
each corner of the world at one
of this year's highly anticipated
events, the 25th Annual Down-
town Festival and Art Show.

M.E. Arts And
Woodwork To Host
An Open House
By Anna Wild
Libby Ripley and her brother
David "Pinto" Poole have
teamed up to bring Gilchrist
County M.E. Arts and Wood-
work. They are located on SR
26 in Trenton across from Sub-
way and Elite Fitness. Libby
handles artwork, framing, and
epoxy finishing while "Pinto"
takes care of designing and
building wood furniture and cre-
ating beautiful wood burned art.
They share building space with
their sister Flora Brock who has
owned B and T Enterprises for
the past three years and has 25
years of experience. Flora and
her partner Jessie Taylor offer
bookkeeping, full tax services,
notary services, and paralegal


services. They can even help
you with your will and power of
attorney needs.
Libby has a knack for finding
nice art in puzzles and after put-
ting them together she frames the
work and adds an epoxy finish
which leaves a glasslike finish.
She has also loved photograph-
ing scenery and framing it in
her beautifully designed frames.
Libby has worked on this form
of art since 1990 as a hobby and
had received so many comments
on her art that she is now doing
what she truly loves. She can
frame any artwork and she will
also add glass or an epoxy finish
to protect your art. She loves the
epoxy finish because it dries to
a glasslike finish but it can be
easily repaired if it is damaged
and you clean it like you would
a pair of reading glasses. All
of her artwork including pho-


Small buildings, boats, etc. 24 hr. towing service,
22ft. rollback bed. Carports also available.
Reasonable Rates.

The United States
Government Says
Americans Are Not
Eating Enough Fruits
And Vegetables
The U.S. government recently
bumped up its recommendations.
for fruit and vegetable consump-,
tion,. and' a new study suggests
it's very likely Americans aren't;
keeping up.
The United States Department.
of Agriculture had long recom-
mended that everyone get atn
least five servings of fruits and'
veggies daily, but adjusted that
requirement to 2 to 6-1/2 cups of
fruits and vegetables daily in its
new MyPyramid food guide, Dr.
Patricia Guenther of the USDA's
Center for Nutrition Policy and
Promotion and colleagues note.
The guidelines specify recom-
mended intake by age and sex,
and spell out the variety of veg-
etables people should eat.
To investigate how many peo-
ple were meeting the new stan-
dards and the old ones,Guenther
and her team looked at single-
day food intake data for 8,070
people participating in the 1999-
2000 National Health and Nutri-
tion Examination Survey.
They found just 40 percent
were meeting then-current rec-
ommendations to eat five serv-
ings of fruits and vegetables
daily. Girls aged four to eight
had the lowest intake, with just
10 percent meeting the require-
ments, while men aged 51 to 70
had the highest, with 60 percent
eating at least five fruit and veg-
gie servings daily.
The percentage of people
meeting the new MyPyramid
requirements ranged from 0.7
percent of boys aged 14 to 18,
who are recommended to eat
five cups of fruit and veggies
daily, to 48/percent of children
aged two to three, whose recom-
mendation is two cups.
"Nutrition and other health
care professionals must help
consumers realize that for ev-
eryone over age 3 years, the new
recommendations for fruit and
vegetable intakes are greater,
and in many cases much greater,
than the familiar five servings
a day," Guenther and her col-
leagues conclude.
